Pronouns: he/him/his

Martin Chavez began his career as an educator teaching middle school health science and physical education in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with the Lasallian Volunteers. During his time in Oklahoma, he was an Athletic Director, Volleyball Coach, Tutor, and Substitute Teacher, but is better known for preparing and serving the “breakfast special”! For his efforts, he was recognized as the Lasallian Volunteer of the Month and featured in their publications. After that, he served as a Language Arts Teacher in Inglewood, California, and Minneapolis, Minnesota. In addition, he served as a club moderator, taught enrichment courses, and helped lead restorative justice programs. Martin is a first-generation college graduate and earned his Bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College of California in which he was a finalist for the John Dennis Award for his work with mentoring and supporting other first-generation students. He also holds a Master’s degree in Enrollment Management and Policy from the University of Southern California where he was an Impact Scholar. When he is not catching Dodgers games, he can be found watching them with family or playing rugby, basketball, or reading … sadly, not all at the same time.
